The Marin Humane Society (MHS) has organized a Holiday Pet Food Drive to replenish supplies of pet food that supports low-income pet guardians. Donations will be used to deliver much-needed supplies to the MHS SHARE (Special Human-Animal Relationships) clients and provide support to dozens of others in need each month.

Donations may be delivered directly to MHS shelter at 171 Bel Marin Keys Blvd in Novato or to Kitty Corner in San Anselmo at the Red Hill shopping center.

And for those who don’t have time to purchase pet food, financial contributions are also welcome and will be used to purchase additional food. Donate online, by mailing a check to the address above, or by calling 415.506.6259.

Of particular need are canned cat and dog food and small bags of dry cat and dog food. “Requests for pet food and supplies continue to come into the SHARE office daily,” says Annie Humphrey, SHARE program coordinator. “With the public’s help, we can make the season a little brighter for hundreds of Marin’s less fortunate pets and their guardians. It becomes one less thing to worry about knowing that their pet’s basic needs can be met.”

Funded entirely by donations and grants, the SHARE program provides a lifeline for 221 low-income pet guardians in times of need. Ongoing assistance is offered in the form of pet food, veterinary care, home visits, and emergency boarding for pets in the event of hospitalization of the client. A healthy supply of donated pet food also enables MHS to provide one-time assistance for dozens of others in need and to coordinate with local human needs organizations in Marin to distribute pet food and supplies to their clients.
